Consciously focusing on your breathing has been a tool to feel better since ancient times. And, I was fascinated to learn that the Latin words for breath and spirit are the same. Breathwork utilizes conscious controlling of breathing patterns to achieve specific desired results. In this intriguing interview, we explore Biodynamic Breathwork with expert Jennifer Prema McKeever. Prema is a body-oriented therapist and educator who combines more than 20 years of experience in Eastern medicine, meditation, emotional release work, and body-mind therapies. She will share with us how breathwork can:
- Help the body by releasing chronic tension and stressors
- Discover ways to discharge sorrow and grief
- Use touch, sound, conscious emotional expression and meditation to support trauma release
- Create change on the somatic level plus much more…
Our guest Jennifer Prema McKeever while treating thousands of patients as a doctor of Chinese medicine saw how vital our emotional health is for our physical health. She is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and an expert facilitator in BioDynamic Breath and Trauma Release System (BBTRS), a unique approach to release trauma from our nervous system and restoring health and vitality.

After some sessions with tonight’s guest, Sharon has experienced an amazing profound release so she said, “You’ve got to be on the show and share it.”
She begins by asking Prema to talk about what trauma is and how breathwork works with trauma. Prema delves deeply into the subject, sharing how processing out and releasing trauma ─ which can come from different forms ─ from the body is exactly what they do in biodynamic breathwork and trauma release.
They talk about the “freeze response” and how it can greatly impact us not just emotionally but physically through our internal organs.
0:09:30.9 At this point, Prema begins a lengthy and detailed discussion on breathwork, trauma release and what the experience is like
0:20:56.4 Here, Prema cites an example of a transformation that has happened through the process and continues on to share some tips as to how we can process “freeze” situations so it doesn’t become lodged in our nervous system and, thus, become a problem for us later on.
She also offers suggestions on how we can support others who are experiencing some sort of trauma.
0:35:44.1 Prema describes what her sessions are like and the common denominator that brings people to join them.
0:41:56.5 With just a few minutes left, she suggests a way to reset our nervous system, and that is by moving our attention from being inward focused to outward focused.
